What are your views on Ebola outbreaks in Africa?
★ We should first try to find ways to stop the further spread of the virus.
★ On the other hand, it is better to investigate the source of the virus. Is it coming from mutation? Or is it synthesized? It is important to know because we need to prevent a further outbreak of other similar disease.
★ The current outbreak of Ebola also exposed the hygiene environment and the relevant management method of the officials, as well as the common living condition of the people in Africa. There is certain room for improvement. It is a good chance to arouse people's awareness of it.
What are your views on if Taiwan has already come up with any preventic measures for the possible health threats? If yes, what are they?
★ I am not very sure about the preventive measure of Taiwan.
★ However, from what happened in Africa, and also in the US. Taiwan can review its policy of admitting tourists from relevant locations. Do they need to be quarantined if apparent symptons are observed?
★ Of course at the same time, we should not treat them as criminals, as there is a recent news in the US that the "infected suspect" was quite mistreated.
★ Anyway, no one wants the disease, hopefully with the effort of the scientist, medical doctors and government official, this Ebola crisis will be over soon.
